Chilean artist Mon Laferte has announced a two-month tour of the U.S. this morning behind her recent album, SEIS. The coast-to-coast run goes on sale Friday, July 23 at 10 am local time and will kick off September 14 in Seattle. The run will then head down the West Coast for shows at the famed Wiltern in Los Angeles and cross the country from Phoenix to Brooklyn wrapping back west in Tucson. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
She will bring her tour to DC on October 11 at The Fillmore Silver Spring.
SEIS is an intensely personal album inspired by a documentary about Mexican singer Chavela Vargas, who is best known for revolutionizing Mexican ranchera music. The songs were born during the global pandemic and heavy isolation, and include carefully crafted lyrics, brought forth from self-reflection, allowing Mon to explore her deepest feelings, leaving nothing but vulnerability at this rare time.
SEIS was recently nominated for two Premios Juventud awards, Mon’s powerful duet with Alejandro Fernandez, “Que Se Sepa Nuestro Amor,” for ‘Best Regional Mexican Fusion’ and her feminine call to arms, “La Mujer,” a duet with Gloria Trevi, for the ‘Girl Power’ award. The Mexico, youth-focused awards celebrating the best in pop culture, are presented by Univision. Winners will be announced on July 22.
Rolling Stone called “Que Se Sepa Nuestro Amor,” “theatrical,” adding, “Fernández and Laferte exchange operatic verses befit for a bodice-ripping romance novel.” Billboard said, “It’s the collaboration we didn’t know we needed… one of the most attractive pairings of the year.”
Discussing “La Mujer,” The New York Times said, “Mon Laferte infuses vintage styles with up-to-date sentiments and fierce attitude” and The New Yorker added, “Laferte channels [Chavela] Vargas’s ability to convey both fierce grit and shattered vulnerability.” Robin Hilton at NPR Music noted SEIS, “Reminded me of a Chilean Édith Piaf…It’s easy to imagine her performing these songs late at night in a little club somewhere.”
Mon Laferte has also contributed her version of “Nothing Else Matters” to The Metallica Blacklist album. An unprecedented 50+ artists spanning an unbelievably vast range of genres, generations, cultures, continents, and more, each contributed a unique interpretation of their favorite Black Albumcut. Pre-order available here.
Enjoy Mon Laferte’s enamoring live performances of “Amor Completo,” “Que Se Sepa Nuestro Amor“ and “Tu Falta De Querer“ to prepare for her upcoming trip across the United States.
